    I focus on fiction, sci-fi, fantasy, science, history, politics and read a lot. I try to review everything I read.

    "Beautiful Kafka Story was Well Narrated"

    This is one of Kafka’s best stories and is very easy to read and quite enjoyable. The narration, although not perfect, matches the story nicely. This is one of my favorite Kafka stories. The story has a wonderfully bland tone regardless of the hideous circumstances. This is priced at about four bucks, so I didn’t use a full credit. I have read this story quite a few times and completely enjoyed this version. If you haven’t read Kafka, this is the best place to start.
